Fotografía y documentación. Mr. Vanderbilt’s House and Collection.Driehaus Museum. Twin Houses . New York.

Las Twin Houses fueron, en su época, uno de los mejores ejemplos de arquitectura de Nueva York y, por extensión, de todo USA. En aquella época las revistas de arquitectura tenían acceso al interior de alguno de estos edificios y se permitía, incluso, la publicación de libros con todo el detalle del interior.  Así, por ejemplo: William Henry Vanderbilt House. Twin Houses . New York.

It was a feast for the eyes. The architect-decorators were Christian and Gustave Herter, German-born cabinetmakers favored by New York’s elite, and they worked with experienced architects Charles Atwood and John Snook to anchor their profuse decorative elements to a standing structure.

This is a living project that will continue to grow and evolve as NARA digitizes more photographs from the BIA records

Therefore, some Tribal Nations, topics, and geographic areas may not be fully represented. As NARA digitizes and makes more photographs publicly accessible, they will be made available through this project.

Captions for, and the terms used to describe, the photographs in these records were created at about the time each image was captured.

Some of the terms used at the time may now be considered to be outdated, inaccurate, derogatory, disrespectful, or culturally insensitive. NARA does not alter, edit, or modify original captions, as they are part of the historical record and reflect and document the standard language, attitudes, and biases at the time.

 

Los subtítulos y los términos utilizados para describir las fotografías de estos registros se crearon aproximadamente en el momento en que se capturó cada imagen. 

 Algunos de los términos utilizados en ese momento pueden considerarse ahora obsoletos, inexactos, despectivos, irrespetuosos o culturalmente insensibles. NARA no altera, edita ni modifica los subtítulos originales, ya que son parte del registro histórico y reflejan y documentan el lenguaje estándar, las actitudes y los prejuicios en ese momento.
